Adult Gastroenterology Training Program

Role of Mentor

Each trainee is assigned a mentor who will be available to discuss problems ranging from personal (e.g. stress) to professional (e.g. career choices).

The mentor is expected to develop a special relationship with the trainee over the duration of his or her stay in the program. The mentor should assist the trainee in meeting his or her goals within the context of the program, and specifically with respect to general objectives #4 and #6 of the second year.

The role of the mentor does not conflict with the roles of the Program Director or the Site Coordinators; all will contribute to resolving a trainee's particular problems and all will be directly involved in achieving general objective #5 of the second year.
